This plugin permits to have a way to add links, preview and write the comment, as in Facebook. I cannot imagine how would be possibile to have a social without this function. Said that, what is necessary to know about BuddyDev is their TOP EXCELLENT SUPPORT for customer that buy the yearly support included in the full serie of plugin (it’s impossible to imagine to build a Buddypress social network without at least 10 of their plugin). I STRONGLY recommend to use this plugin and the excellent support they provide to any Buddypress website developer.
